Equinox for the Quakerhouse

Four Leeds College of Music students head up the road to Darlington to play a gig at Darlington Jazz Club on Sunday (February 14). Drummer Abbie Finn is from around these parts and will surely show her band mates the lay of the land. The Quakerhouse, tucked away in Mechanics’ Yard, is as good a place as any to start. A proper pub, the Camra awards adorning the walls are testament to its popularity and good beer. There must be a beer drinker in the band, they can’t all be new breed student tee-totallers!
 Abbie, a one-time member of the County Durham Youth Big Band, will be joined by Jake Rider (alto sax), Sam Lowther (guitar) and bassist Manraj Lall. The quartet will receive a warm reception in the upstairs room at the Quakerhouse. If Abbie’s Equinox band mates have half her talent Sunday evening in Darlington has all the makings of a memorable gig. Doors at 5:30pm, first set 6:00pm. Arrive early, it will be a full house.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
